Plus, she lives on the East Coast where it’s been steamy and hot since early June. So to say the least, she’s been pretty miserable.
But here’s the good news…
There is something that might help: Magnesium. A new study found that breast cancer survivors who took this mineral had fewer sweaty days and nights.
For the study, U.S. researchers recruited breast cancer survivors. Each of the women experienced at least 14 hot flashes per week. But to help ease these symptoms, the researchers gave the women 400 mg per day of magnesium oxide for four weeks.
A month later, the women reported 41 percent fewer hot flashes. Plus, the hot flashes weren’t as bad.
In fact, the women said their intensity decreased by about 50 percent.
No, the magnesium didn’t wipe out the hot flashes completely. But at least it is a very natural and healthy way to make you feel more comfortable as you rebuild your strength after cancer.
It should help my friend tremendously.
